Age-Friendly Caledon

Age-Friendly Caledon Logo

The Town of Caledon is committed to strengthening community connections for residents aged 55 and over. We have built an Age-Friendly Action Plan designed to help remove barriers that impact your ability to connect with the people, places and services that make Caledon a great place live.

Over the next decade, Caledon will have nearly 10,000 more older adult residents (age 55 and over) than we have today. To address this major demographic shift, the Town of Caledon is embarking upon this new community initiative to ensure that its support systems – programs, services and facilities – are fully ready to meet the needs of a growing and ageing population base.
